Winrock’s ONE-SL Project Highlighted in U.S. Plan to Conserve Global Forests
At COP26 during the World Leaders Summit Forest Day session on November 2, 2021, the United States announced the Plan to Conserve Global Forests: Critical Carbon Sinks, which includes an inventory of new and existing programs that support the implementation of the Plan including the Department of State-funded, Winrock-executed Offsetting National Emissions from Sustainable Landscapes Plus (ONE-SL) project.
ONE-SL will support countries and subnational jurisdictions at an advanced state of readiness to implement jurisdictional REDD+ programs that are eligible for international climate finance, and will improve the capacity of national and sub-national REDD+ and Article 6 focal points to support market engagement. With significant potential to support achievement of financially sustainable large-scale emissions reductions programs, this can provide a significant step to a country’s ability to achieve its NDC and secure private sector finance.
